At some point in our history, we supposedly did. Technically it’s no longer in Hungary, but in Romania so I wanna say it was the Corvin Castle? For awhile, I thought it was the Vajdahund castle in Budapest, since our Maiden name is Vajda(pronounced Vey-Duh), but it was built in the late 1800s and the Corvin Castle inspired some of its architecture. But my Gramps stole like an alcoholic drink shaker-looking thing with some mini wine-looking glasses from the castle none-the-less. I’ll see if there’s anymore info I can get out of my mom cause that conversation happened as she was leaving for work the other day.

Later that night, Dad stopped the car out in the middle of the desert, and we slept under the stars. We had no pillows, but Dad said that was part of his plan. He was teaching us to have good posture. The Indians didn’t use pillows, either, he explained, and look how straight they stood. We did have our scratchy army-surplus blankets, so we spread them out and lay there, looking up at the field of stars. I told Lori how lucky we were to be sleeping out under the sky like Indians.
     "We could live like this forever,“ I said.
     "I think we’re going to,” she said.
